What scale are you using for your banjo break at the end of death trip (studio bad livers) g minor pentatonic?

well just transcribe the whole thing and you'll see. i don't really think in terms of "modes" too much but i'd say it's more like i'm playing in Bb over G sort of. there's some chromaticism too. but if you just write out the whole thing and get every note, you'll see exactly what i'm doing. you are thinking right because it is sort of dorian, however, i never think of pentatonics really. one of my early teachers said "anyone that teaches pentatonics should be shot". he was a bit harsh on that, but the point is well taken.
